Series: Christian Mission in a Pagan World
May 31, 2021 | The Rev. Dr. Jonathan Bailes
Acts 17 records the story of Paul’s experience in Athens, the time when the preeminent Christian missionary first visited the cultural and intellectual capital of the ancient world. And for centuries, Christians have been reading and studying this story as a model for how to understand the relationship between Christian faith and pagan philosophy.
The book of Acts tells the story of the birth and expansion of the Church in a pagan world, bearing witness to the irresistible power of the Holy Spirit.
